    "I was watching some Korean pop and was inspired to start my own band. I obtained some pretty, but vapid people from a random inner city street corner, got them all in a room, fed them some tomato soup, and booted up GarageBand. Two hours later, we had an EDM masterpiece. GarageBand makes it happen. Just last week I was on a date with a woman Tommy Lee once had out on his boat. I feel as though I've truly arrived."

    "I started playing around with DrumJam thinking it would be a neat toy, but the more I got into the more I realized it's actually a pretty powerful and authentic digital percussion instrument mixer and simulator. I haven't had an opportunity to compare it to my $300 studio software, but I think I'll be surprised at the results when I do."

    "This is the perfect app for the beginner drummer. It provides everything I need to inspire easy riffs while keeping a mind for timing and pace. I would love to see it come with more options as far as genres, and maybe even a visualizer to reinforce the aural experience."

    "I'm docking a point for distracting ads. Otherwise, this is great. It sounds like real drums. It responds quickly to touch, which is crucial for creating a decent beat. The ability to save and edit is wonderful. "
